Plan your upgrade to avoid Windows 7 end-of-life security threats


Microsoft support for Windows 7 ends in January, posing a significant security threat to organizations that have not yet upgraded.

Windows 7 users will no longer receive security updates, leaving them vulnerable to data losses and unauthorized access, thereby increasing the risk of noncompliance with regulatory guidelines, including the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard.
